Posted on 08/26/2013 2:25:58 PM PDT by TruthInThoughtWordAndDeed
As talk and rumors of an impending Western attack against Syria mount, a top Syrian official said Monday that if attacked, his country would react against Israel.
Speaking to an Arabic-language radio station operated by the United States, Syria's Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah said that Israel would face not only Syria in the event that the US, Britain and France attempted to unseat Bashar al-Assad. A coalition consisting of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria would respond to any attack against Assad with a response against Israel. In addition, terrorist groups in Syria and Lebanon would attack Israel with full force.

WOW, didn’t see that one coming!.........../s
That will just further Obama’s desire to bomb Syria. He despises Israel. This could get really ugly really quickly.
“If you don’t buy this magazine, the puppy gets shot.”
I don’t believe that Assad would do that. His army has to be weakened by the long civil war. Israel would make sure he was a dead man, as well.
That's the domino logic that got WWI started. Be careful.
This strategy has always resided at the back of my brain,one that is very real, makes very much sense.A leader like Assad under threat of losing it all and worse realizes there’s nothing to lose in taking enemies like Israel down with him in destructive nihilistic manner.
Well now he has to do it. Anything to hurt Israel.
And it is all unfolding as our own military has been absolutely gutted in the last 3 years. Defense is hobbled by Sequestration and poor leadership. If we get into this war, it will go badly for us.
Be very,very careful what you spout. The US will make a silly little attempt to “fire a warning shot”, when Israel decides to get involved it will reach down your throat and pull out your entrails.
Israel is probably in better shape to fight a war than the US.
There was that time Israel was surrounded by 22 moslem countries...
The Egyptians etc had jets, tanks..
The jews had old turkish rifles from WWI...
who was it that won that time ???
Not to worry it will happen
Israel’s response will be much worse than President Milquetoast will ever deliver. Course, he will still be able to take the bows.
“Damascus Glass” will take on an entirely different meaning.
I suspect they are telling the Syrians if they want continued Iranian support then let the US launch a few cruise missiles and forget about it..
Is this the beginning of the end? Will every country be against Israel? We already know the US is.
Yup Damascus being taken down in an hour is coming. Move over Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Bye, bye Syria.
Can’t say it was all that nice knowing ya.
When every country is against Israel, the End Times are here.
I can comprehend Russia not minding a Mideast war that makes their oil exports more expensive, but I can’t figure how oil-importing China would benefit.
Am I missing something?
Glenn Beck called this two years ago, but he's a drama queen donchaknow....
a win-win for 0bama. He satifies his Muslim Brothers and hurts Israel at the same time. He truly is a master of destruction.
Mac daddy can bow and take credit all he wants, the world know him for what he really is and liar and con man to be believed by no one with a brain the size of a grain of sand, and perhaps much smaller.
Indeed, hates Israel, hates netanyahu, and does the bidding of the House of Saud (who fears the mus. brotherhood and so finances them to buy them off, like the madrassahs). And all the while the Israelis and Saudis work together against shiite/alawite ruling family the Assads and their mutual enemy- Iran, thinking they can still marginalize the muslim brotherhood (which they can’t- just like they couldn’t for a time in Egypt). Tipping point.
Not checkers... chess.
Last time I checked, Israel had a powerful Army, Air Force and Navy, along with about 800 nuclear and thermonuclear weapons.
I really do worry that Obama is arrogant enough to think that he can get away with anything he does. He sure has in the US.
Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.
If Syria attacks Israel, Israel should make Syria a big piece of glass.
Beck even named where the “Arab Spring” would start but admits that he was just guessing about it starting in Tunisia. However it was a good educated guess about it starting in an out of the way place no one ever thinks about.
Clearly, this is two-fer for the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut. Help out the Muslim Brotherhood, let somebody else try to deliver a kick in the teeth to the Israelis, and all with hardly getting our feet wet.
What if they had a war and nobody came?
Oops, too late. War already started, with or without us.
Both parties will use this when it comes to the debt ceiling.
Well that would explain how Damascus becomes a ruinous heap never to be inhabitable again.
Predicting the future accurately can be based on the knowledge of history and probability of it happening again when the same mistakes are repeated.
We seem to never learn, when we point it out we're called crazy...then everyone is "surprised"
This could get interesting.
Well, okay, bomb Syria. We and western Europe got Israel into that mess with our preferences for foreign oil and foreign labor. We should be bound to get ‘em out of it. The Islamist nations are not our allies.
Amen SkyPilot. Now is the time to be assured of your salvation. Even though Catholics believe that is not possible, it states in numerous places in God’s Word that you CAN be assured.
They won’t even get the chance. Everything will be destroyed within hours.
If the US attacks Syria, there are going to be a lot of dead Americans. This isn’t Iraq and it isn’t Afghanistan. Syria is an active Russian Ally.
Additionally, Israel is better off with the situation as is. It’s border enemies are at war with Jihadists which will go on for years.
If anything, it looks like America is trying to drive Israel into a war it nether wants or needs.
China appears to be working on dominating the far East and beyond. The only country standing in their way is the U.S.
Recently a large amount of oil has been discovered in the South China Sea which China is trying to contest with the Philippines.
In spite of the fact that we are their best customer, if few imploded, they could greatly expand their reach. Russia being a fellow communist nation but some what handicapped could reconstitute the USSR.
Think about how many people agree with obama and his puppet masters. Hillary, McCain, Pelosi, Reid and every democrat in congress. The new kids who just got there and those that have been there for 20 years and kept a low profile. Then you’ve got all the world leaders. Why does no one challenge him? I have to believe the link in Post #5 above explains it.
If you don’t have precious metals, I think now may be a good time to buy. Gold is over $1400.
